THE GREAT MIRACLE OR THE MAN WHO COULD NOT BE KILLED .
London: Stanley Paul & Co., [1914] - Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iv] v-vi 1-315 [316] + 48-page publisher's catalogue dated November 1913 inserted at rear, original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. "A down-on-his-luck clerk in London inherits a powerful spell from his dying employer, who had stumbled upon it in the Congo. It guarantees immunity from bodily harm and an ability to pass through objects -- but comes with certain conditions. The clerk recites the spell and begins a life of great adventures, loses the spell, regains it, becomes a great man, loses his fortune, etc. A well-written fantastic adventure story, given depth by an element of psychological reflection." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler (1978), p. 198. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 216. Small rubber stamp of Foyle's Booksellers on front paste-down. Spine panel darkened and marked, a very good copy of this uncommon book.
